90's Inspired

When EIC of SKORCH Magazine, my dear friend Tiffany, said she was going to have a 90's themed issue I was thrilled!  She shares my love of 90's fashion which I adore about her.  I was asked if I could make some pieces for the Clueless themed shoot and it was all I could do not just to just say yes right then and there.  The icing on the cake was I would be making the clothes for Tess Munster one of my favorite plus size models. On top of that I created 3 different bathing suits for a separate shoot but still for the 90's issue. Once we planned out what I would be sending her my next task was to plan out my own 90's inspired outfit for the bloggers fashion post section.

I had recently been vintage fabric shopping and came across some amazing prints.  One struck me as very 90's flower power that was at the time inspired by the 60's floral trend.  So that fabric turned into a full skirt that I paired it with my bright yellow velvet bodysuit from my shop!  Add my platform (former mary jane) shoes, neon yellow and pink vinyl purse, cross earrings from Domino Dollhouse and vintage Lennon glasses I think I pulled together a look that is retro inspired from several era's but is also something that I can wear out and about today.
